GET OLD, GET EVEN, GET OUTTA HERE, US, 98 MIN
For those action fans still unsure about The Expendables, there’s always the Red gang to fall back on. Bruce Willis, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren can only muster moderate outward enthusiasm for the franchise’s codgers-as-cold-blooded-assassins shtick this time around. With Morgan Freeman unable to return for this so-so sequel, the new old faces on the block here are Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones. The plot centres on a long-lost atomic bomb. The movie fails to detonate.
